The Virginia General Assembly passed critical legislation to protect wildlife corridors and help keep drivers safer. This bill builds on the wildlife corridor legislation that passed last year.
Senator David W. Marsden introduced wildlife conservation legislation that will benefit both Virginia’s wildlife and residents. The bill promotes the protection of wildlife corridors across the state by directing key agencies to incorporate wildlife corridors and road crossings into their planning.
the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure included dedicated funding in the INVEST in America Act to support state, tribal and federal efforts to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions, making America’s roads safer for both motorists and wildlife.
The Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act was introduced today by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) and Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA). If passed, the Act will be a major victory for wildlife and wildlands across the country, restoring habitat and protecting America’s native wildlife by establishing a National Wildlife Corridors Program.
